 2010-10-29, 16:47 #1 mart_r     Dec 2008 you know...around... 2×353 Posts I get 13% less primes than I expected:-( Suppose I have an integer of magnitude of about 1028. If this number has no factors less than 104, am I right in assuming that this leaves a chance of about log(1028)/(2*log(104)) = 1:3.5, i.e. 28.57%, that this number will be prime?

By Merten's theorem, log(1028)/(1.781*log(104)) is a better approximation.

1.781 =e^gamma

Oh! That would explain everything.
Thanks!
